Text, letter

Mr Langley came down again this evening at my request, about the premiums to school children for regularity of attendance during 1894. We agreed that no child should be considered at all “regular” who was absent more than once a week on the average during the year, in other words 90 per cent of attendance must be made, and thus 1d. for every five absences should be deducted from the maximum premium of 2/6.
